This year has certainly been an interesting year to be in the business of producing pork. Even though the number of pigs and pounds of pork produced in 2017 were record highs for the U.S., expansion continued because margins were good. While there are many reasons for this, the bottom line is that we are the global leaders in producing safe, wholesome pork and we do it more efficiently than any other country. The work that we do on the Animal Science Committee continues to focus on making improvements in production efficiency.
